June is here or will be shortly with graduations, summer parties, first crop hay and Grange elections. Election time is a great opportunity to give someone a chance to “grow” in your Grange. No matter what you plant it needs to be watered, nurtured and given plenty of room for growth. Election gives us a chance to allow others to grow.
Northeast Youth Conference is July 10 -12 in Rhode Island. Sign up information is on the website or can be mailed to you by contacting either myself or the State Grange Office. I will be going down on Friday evening and if you would like to attend and need transportation please contact me. I have room for 2 more people.
Don’t forget Family Campout Weekend July 17-19 at Silver Springs Campground in Saco. Come spend a day where there is plenty of “fun, food and fellowship”. The campground features two swimming pools (one for the adults only) and on Saturday we hold a couple of “fun” tournaments and there is ample time for catching up with fellow Grangers. Saturday night features a pot luck dinner and ice cream social. 2015 Campout Weekend Information.
I hope you are working on your resolutions for this year’s State Grange Convention. The deadline of August 15 is fast approaching. I have heard of at least one Pomona that is having a resolution writing session. Brainstorming and working together can make this process much simpler and a lot more fun. There are some resolution writing resources available in the Legislative Section of the Program Books and Information Page.
Enjoy summertime–in the Grange and in your life!
Together Each Accomplishes More
